In what language is Sharepoint written in?

I encounter some bugs, and it would help if I would know in what language it is written in.

I believe it was originally developed in C++.  Of course you can now develop .NET executables in C++ so it is possible they ported it or have developed portions of it now in some flavor of .NET.

Most of MSFT's products are still written in C++ and run natively.  They make allowances to inter-operate with .NET for business reasons.

Yes, for MOSS 2007.
I mean Sharepoint 2003. I think it is C++, but I'm not sure, but can not find anything that could confirm it.

I talked to a microsoft developer and he told me it was written in perl and ruby on rails.
think about it

LMAO!  perl ;-)

I find it interesting that most of the power house software mega-corps -- including Microsoft -- still use C++.  You just can beat it.

Unless you use Delphi for native Windows development...:-)

It is interesting that very little of Microsoft's own commercial applications are written in .net isn't it? I guess they don't even like their own dog food...
